The Princess and the Peach by Benedict Brown
A prince, a foundling, trolls, dragons, singing gnomes, a fashion-forward king, bloodsucking pussycats, plenty of princesses and a peach.
A nameless orphan is bought from her cruel owners by a band of thieves led by the charismatic ex-pirate, The Great Bartholomew. The gang warm to the young girl as one of their own and to give her a start in the world they teach her how to behave like an aristocrat, talk like a lady and fight for her life.
In the royal palace, Prince Paul wants nothing more than to be a typical teenager. His vain father and demonic mother demand that he marry a pure-blooded princess who will pass the age-old family test and feel a pea beneath seventeen mattresses but Paul is tired of seeing the lines of pretty princesses turned away. He just wants a girl to hold his hand.
To save the kingdom from a very spoilt princess, the two will have to join forces, take a trip to Hell and avoid getting eaten by bloodthirsty monsters and some hideously cute singing gnomes. A unique adventure full of comedy and romance, “The Princess and the Peach” is an untraditional fairytale with a modern attitude that will keep you reading to the bitter, happy end.
